School's out for-ever!

Hi all! How goes it? Today I am carrying on with my thrifted finds theme. The dress in this post was thrifted at an all night flea market I attended a few weeks back. The flea market runs from 4pm-4am and you are asked to bring your flash lights. Talk about an adventure!! It was at our local country fairgrounds and had dozens of fun stalls to rummage through. They even had celebrities!! Eddie Munster was there, haha. He looked nothing like how we all remember him (obviously, he grew up) but it was sort of cool to see. They also had some old James Bond girls, ex-wrestlers, storm troopers, and satan santa (he scared me really bad). They have another one running the week of Halloween and I just might have to attend.

I found - quite possibly my favorite thrifted dress - EVER - in a stall near Eddie Munster. It is a hand made little gem with the cutest little details. I love the giant bow around the collar :] The dress was also only $10!

Outfit Details: Dress, cameo, belt - thrifted | Heels - DSW | Dachshund bag - gifted.

I wish my wardrobe was full of similar dresses. The length and pattern are perfect. I can't wait to wear it around town this fall. I think it will look cute with a nice little cardigan. I only wish I could still wear this around the quad - I think it is the perfect school look :]

Have you thrifted anything spectacular lately?

Have a good day everyone!!

  1. Wah, $10 is such a steal! What a great find. And oh my goodness, at first, I wasn't sure your bag was a dachshund bag, simply because I didn't think such an awesome thing existed! That's so cool!! :)

  10. That is definitely the perfect school dress!!! I have actually been scanning Etsy for the perfect plaid, school dress recently, and even though I won't be purchasing anything since we're being tightwads and saving, I still look to fulfill some sort of shopping void. haha But omg, $10 - I could dish out $10 for a dress like this! The length is one of my favorite things about it. And it looks perfect on you, especially because of your hair color (I think).
    P.S. I loooove Eddie Munster!!!
    P.P.S. OMG Satan Santa?! WTFNOTHANKS
    P.P.P.S. I seriously wish I could attend the Halloween one with you. It sounds so cool and I'm pretty sure we don't have anything like that here. :/
